MAJURO won a couple of plating races here in December and has been competing against higher rated rivals than these since then. He should return to winning ways in this company and is likely to start a short-price. Chambles is weighted to get the better of The Mongoose though the latter is the more recent winner having scored at Wolverhampton last month but Leelu has little chance on today's terms and arrives in poor form anyway.
